, jon meacham, the author of the forthcoming book thomas jefferson, and mark halperin of time magazine and john heilemann of time magazine. >> albert hunt, executive editor of bloomberg news and david leonhardt the bureau chief of "the new york times", joining us shortly from washington, katty kay of bbc world news of america, and slate magazine, we have a really fascinating group of people here to talk about what was a remarkable debate. i begin first with al hunt. >> charlie, if the barack obama who was on stage at hofstra had showed up in denver two weeks ago, he might have put this race away. i don't think mitt romney did poorly tonight, i thought he actually did, you know, fairly well but barack obama was the ago press sorry. he set the agenda. he did everything he failed to do in deb very, denver, both in defending his record and in challenging some of governor romney's inconsistencies. my guess is that he let romney back in two weeks ago and this won't change, this is a very, very tight race and there was hemorrhaging, all indications were really that this was continuing that he

" magazine senior political analyst, mark halperin. hello, halperin. former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner. good to have you on board as well. >> morning, mika. >> we have new polls this morning that are very interesting. and i see how alex has stacked this. and we just started fighting. and alex doesn't really fight. about this whole binder thing. how is that not a lie? can we go there, halperin? when you say you sought out, and then it turns out that they were brought to you, that's not the truth, correct? >> i just don't think that's what this campaign should be about. >> right. >> i would say that about either side. >> what, us calling out facts shouldn't be about that? all right. we'll get to it. but i will totally disagree. it appears with everybody at this table. >> explain what you mean that's important. >> at the debate the other night, mitt romney talks about how there weren't enough women, and so he sought them out. >> right. >> and then binders of women were brought to him, which is a whole funny thing but, you know, that's not true. >> i thi

political analyst, mark halperin. he's also the author of the book "game change." . let's talk first about strategy tonight. president obama of course criticized for being sleepy in the first debate. we don't know if he was trying a rope-a-dope strategy tonight. what is it tonight? >> here's what he has to do. there's speculation about what the president needs to do, what governor romney needs to do. the president has two obligations, one is to show that he really wants to be president in a second term and what he would do. that's more important. people focus on taking down mitt romney. i think he'll get questions tonight about what he would do in the future. to me that's the most important thing. second is he needs to go back to defining mitt romney on his terms. will he bring up the 47% quote? will he bring up bain capital? i think he's lost the advantage on defining mitt romney in negative terms. all along he said if he's going to win, he has to make mitt romney an unacceptable choice. he has to find a way to do that in the context of a town meeting where the voters and the

about who he was talking about. >> and with us now, mark halperin, co-author of the book game change. he's up early with us and this morning we'll stand a little closer than we did yesterday, make it a more intimate affair. let's look right away at your report card. president obama gets a b minus from mark halperin, a c for mitt romney. explain the grades. >> this debate was the biggest rorschach test i've seen since doing these grades. you have people including focus groups and polls that go one way, go the other. i think part of my grades are based on performance, part based on how it affects the race and the chances the person has of winning the contest. i thought governor romney lost for two reasons. one is the libya exchange. i think that was an issue where he thought he'd be on offense. i thought his answer was weak. the president's was very strong. the other main reason is what has mitt romney's problem in this campaign all along some when someone gets inside his head, when someone connects his policy proposals with his personal background, when someone says you're a ri

mark halperin, of course, right here, right across the table. you know, if a lot of people out there are wondering why mika's thrown off this morning, all you need to do, willie, look at her sweater. that's why she's in mourning. it's jet green, of course -- >> i'm looking at the food on your sweater. >> all of the great love stories of our time, sampson and delilah, right? >> i told you he was distracted. >> romeo and juliet. lucy and desi, ronny and nancy. as the who sang in "who's next," "the song is over. i'm left with only tears." mark and eva longoria. >> i told you. >> splitsville. >> i told you, he was distracted. >> it's a romance that i thought would last a lunchtime and now it's over. >> i confess to not being as read in on that story as i should be. let me report back to you. >> you know lupica. they say these are the glory days of new york giants fans. go back to the '50s, the glory days of the early '60s. now's the time. you disagree. he's sniffing glue. >> he is greatly enamored of eli manning, as am i, but i think the glory days of the new york giants were at the form

in his favor. joining me now, msnbc's senior political analyst mark halperin and "usa today" washington bureau chief susan page and columnist for "the washington post" uveen robinson. welcome all. first to mark halperin, the move to the center there's no complaint from conservatives, is it, so eager to defeat president obama they say anything that works is okay with them? >> well, romney has had as you know a troubled relationship with certain elements of the right, even after he picked paul ryan there was a brief honeymoon period there, people held their tongue for a while but the criticism started again. i think certainly the conventional wisdom amongst the chattering class now the debate performance will quiet critics on the right and get away with saying things moving to the center. the two things, one, it's being overstated how much he's changing positions or even rhetoric from some of the things he's previously said for good or ill but i don't see the cosmic switch to the center as much as others do and the other thing, if he has a bad debate in two weeks i'm not sure

mark halperin senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc. chris to you as a viewer, not rating the debate, winners or losers, not that, but who answered questions and who was responsive to the people in the room and people at home? >> my read out on it, andrea, i watched it live and rewatched some of the clips, i have not watched the whole thing again, so let me say that as a caveat, but my read is neither of them really answered that many questions. candy crowley, i think, to her credit, repeatedly kind of said, you answered apples and the question was oranges. they did not answer the questions that were asked of them broadly. at one point there was a question about gas prices and we started talking about china. they kind -- as you go along in the debate, they each are trying to correct what they view as errors they made before so they use whatever question is asked to go back and say, now let me just make one point here. so i don't think from an undecided voter's viewpoint if you were looking for more information about where the two of them stand, i think you didn't get all that

mark halperin hates, i don't understand why mark halperin hates the council on foreign relations so much, but decides his anti-council bias, you know the other thing that is possible and it can't be discounted is the possibility there will be some news story that cops out in the next few weeks that has an appreciable look on the outcome, it doesn't happen that often but you have a campaign in the obama campaign that spent a lot of time doing a lot of research on governor romney, run by matt rhodes the campaign manager there who is by training an opposition researcher, i am not predicting this, i am just saying it is a possibility that one of the two campaigns still has one piece of opposition research in their bag, that they will pull out in the last two weeks and also possible that a story will just emerge organically, you can't forget that in 2000, the story about governor bush is dui actually had an effect at the end, at least if you believe karl rove it actually moved the needle significantly in terms of the popular vote at the end of 2000 and it is always possible a story like

site of last night's debate in zanvilldanvil kentucky, mark halperin. >> i think i speak for everybody when i say this morning we are all washington senators. >> we are. >> i'm still not going to call them the nats. we had a debate, but willie, really quickly last night, some more great baseball. >> holy cow. >> can you believe that? >> can you see it on my face, when you invest that much time in a game, you have to stay up late and see what happens. >> what time was that over? >> about midnight. >> i came home, vice presidential debate on dvr, yankees live, it was a long night. the yankees lost extra innings. another 12-inning game. 13 innings, excuse me. and the orioles came through in the clutch. a-rod, one more time, joe -- >> struck out. >> he struck out. and then when they had a shot down one run, the bottom of the last inning, they pulled him back to the bench again and sent eric chavez up. he made the last out of the game. it's an incredible story. alex rodriguez, one of the great players in the history of the game, is being taken off the field in crunch time. >> you just can't

introduce everybody first? >> with us on set, "time" magazine political analyst mark halperin and the chairman of deutsche incorporated who is also a student of history. >> yes. >> donny deutsch. >> 1 for 1. >> let's go to what the kids will be talking about all weekend. >> i'm still curious, though, about what everybody is waiting for in those first debates. i don't want to be cynical. i'm not quite sure what's going to happen there that's going to flip the switch. we've seen these guys. i know we haven't seen them together -- give me a scenario, for instance, an actual bac back-and-forth that could save one of them. >> what if one of them just didn't show up? >> would you like me to support my original thesis? >> help me. >> number one, 5% of undecideds. if we become a student of history, one quarter of those are maybe swayed. we're talking about a 1% shift. number two, every poll before the first debate usually ends up being the stand-up poll at the end. number three, actually the leader now gets to be the underdog in the next one. he got his ass kicked in the first one, there's no

. >> we turn now to politics with mark halperin of time magazine, who is also the best selling author of game change. >> if this storm hadn't happened we would be seeing wall-to-wall coverage of one of the most exciting finishes to a presidential election in the television age. we are not going to see as much of that, certainly through the weekend. which means whichever candidate was going to benefit more from national coverage is going to lose paired to what it would have been like. >> rose: we conclude this evening, focusing on politics with nate silver, founder of "the new york times" blog >> i mean ohio is a swing state for a reason, is that it resembles the united states, rural areas and suburban areas, you could certainly have a case where romney wins the popular vote by one point and obama wins ohio and iowa by one point that is possible, maybe a one or two-point shift but there is almost no way to look at the history of this country or try to do the more complex things, the mathematical models unlikely to have romney win the popular and have him lose the electorial co

publication is out with an issue today, who's telling the truth, the fact wars. mark halperin, i've been trying to find appropriate terms that would be substitutes for the phrase game change. i can't. you coined it, you own it. which of these videos, is either one of these videos a game changer in terms of tonight's debate? >> alex, any student of political tv and cable news who didn't watch hannity last night i pity the fool. it was an awesome episode of the show and i mean, if there was some mastermind trying to figure out how to change the game with that video, i think they kind of failed. some people are talking about it as simply for the base to energize the base. mitt romney is no longer running for the republican nomination, he's trying to win a general election. the things that might energize the base, that help to undermine the credibility of his effort with the mainstream media, if i may use that phrase, i think just aren't helping him out. that was a wasted day and lost yesterday after tie org wying og news psy cycles in a row. whoever was doing that on his behalf, ridiculous.
